Hi Ralf

I've tried 2 ways;
1) I downloaded the 'CDROM standard installer' and created a cd frok that. I tried to install on machine that it didn't matter if it over wrote the existing OS or bootloader but it produced errors in the install process and locked up.


2) to use it on main computer I downloaded the 'Boot floppy' version to create a bootable CD. Neither Windows or Linus will write this image to a CD. Windows (7) says it is not a valid ISO and Linux just doesn't other the CD as a valid location to write to. I have had problems with writing ISO images before and windows saying they are not valid ISO images. I can write this image to a SD card but this errors on boot.

Any help would be appreciated.
Kind regards
David

I can't seem to get FreeDOS to install or create a boot disk. I've downloaded the create a boot disk image from the website but when I try to burn a cd windows says it is not a valid ISO file. Linus doen't seem to want burn a disk from it either but will write to SD card but this gives a boot error.
What am I going wrong?
Hard to tell with out a magic crystal ball.

Please be more precise in telling us exactly which image you downloaded and exactly which steps you are taking to burn it to a CD. Then we might have a chance ti figure out at exactly which step you went astray...
